Guilds, Groups, and Factions

Players are allowed and encouraged to start or join groups of like-minded characters in Cormanthor. This can be anything from a trade guild for potion-brewers to a classical mercenary company to a cell of Zhentarim agents working in secret, and so on.

Getting Started

You do not require DM permission to start a group.

The Organizations page on our wiki is the first port of call both for new factions to announce their presence and for players to find an active faction for their characters. Create a page. Tell people what the group is about. Are they recruiting more members? Why would someone want to join them?

Please note that there are many canon factions in the Forgotten Realms, and while we've made an effort to list those active in our neck of the woods, you're welcome to get a character involved with a faction that isn't listed. Talk to a DM!


Private subforums on the board (and channels in Cormanthor's Discord chat) are available by request for groups who wish to make use of them.

These subforums represent your ability to leave messages securely for other members, allow private forum RP (including with DMs), and general OOC coordination between members. However, you don't have to have an IG property to have a subforum, but you should at least be able to identify a common area (eg. a tavern, a grove, or suchlike, in module) that your group regularly meet in and may leave letters at.

It's generally good practice to give your group a week or two to settle down before requesting a subforum, but if your members are settled in more quickly you can request one straight away by sending a private message to Eredruie. You will need to include your group's name and the forum login names of players who need to be given access.

Purchasing Property

As your guild grows, you may want to think about finding them a home of their own in the module. In addition to the prestige it provides, creating your area can come with small perks such as safe spots to rest and shared persistent storage chests. Check out our Purchasing Property thread for more information.
